Subject: [Inkscape-devel] Inkscape 0.92.4 bugfix release

Inkscape has launched version 0.92.4 with increased stability.  This
update delivers some notable performance improvements for filter
rendering, saving and moving paths (with a live path effect), and the
measure tool.

Download Inkscape 0.92.4 packages here:

The key improvements in this version will enable Inkscape users to do or
experience the following:

*  Align multiple objects as a group relative to a single object
*  Write image data to standard output
*  Experience extensions working faster within complex documents
*  See improved speed when deselecting a path with many nodes
*  Ungroup text elements won’t result in changed font size of children
*  Able to print and / or print correct paper size with printers
   (especially Canon, EPSON, Konica Minolta) 
*  See improved performance of the measure tool when grids are visible
*  See proper opacity of partially transparent embedded bitmap images in
   PDF export
*  Able to Shift/Ctrl-click on control handles of shapes without crashing
*  Build Inkscape with up-to-date poppler library 0.72.0 – useful for
   Mac users building with Homebrew 

Translation and documentation updates
The Icelandic and Brazilian Portuguese user interface (UI) translations
have been updated. Inkscape’s Ukranian and Hungarian documentation
translations have also been revised in this version.

Mac OS: Inkscape needs your help
As few Inkscape volunteer developers use Mac, the project needs someone
who knows how to automatically package a .dmg file, to enable Mac users
to test the alpha version, along with Mac equipment to run continuous
integration jobs.

If you're interested in working on this, please introduce yourself on
one of our discussion channels, and keep an eye out for other Mac
volunteers to work with on this important task.
